. - imposed. there is a need for a new, local, economic government. i say there is an urgent need for a new global economic government, centered on people and aiming at consolidating cooperation between partners and development on the basis of mutual benefit and interest. mr. president? , i have laid before you our position, a vision shared by the egyptian people. i have also attempted to briefly outline egyptian views on the main issues, the divisions of the young and children, the women and the men in egypt, on all important questions in the middle east and the rest of the world. i am sure that the united nations is capable of addressing all global and regional challenges through dialogue and joined corporations in accordance with the principles of international law. egypt will spare no effort in dealing sincerely with all the members of this organization. we will always remain at the forefront of international endeavor, achieving freedoms and dignity for all people as well as social justice to all peoples including security and stability for all our countries. i look forward with optimis

denunciatory of the egyptian government, in my judgment. hillary put out a magnificent statement that follows the white house, repudiating the american embassy statement and making a statement calling the egyptian government to task. in libya, we were more conciliatory because the libyan president denounced the attack. but that is not adequate. if they can't control the cops and military, it is not a government. we should be denunciatory. i doubt there is a single country in the world left in civilization that would not have called back its ambassador. and certainly cut off, or put in terms that relates to the 2 billion that egypt receives from the united states, i am sure libya receives money. it was even greater because the american ambassador -- i am supportive of the arab spring. the times and elsewhere, i said to myself, they are not great people. but they are people that surely will turn out nice to us. it doesn't make any sense. >> the events of the last week, the embassy attacks, it will result in a further ongoing shift of jewish americans changing -- >> i think there is a little mor
, and if the government a press free-speech, it makes the world a less free place. he also had a message for iran, that while we want to negotiate through diplomacy if possible, time is not unlimited. that was a warning to the iranian government, which has been obstreperous and very difficult to deal with. i think it was a very important speech the president gave in new york. host: how about mitt romney? can you assess from what you have heard and hear him write these past few months? is there a romney doctrine on foreign policy? how would you encapsulate it? guest: i don't know if there is a romney doctrine yet. governor romney is a very smart, successful person. my guess is that it is not the issue he wants to emphasize in the campaign. once the campaign to be about the economy and the unemployment rate. it is a difficult position for a republican to be running against a democrat who has a strong record on national security. that has been difficult for the romney campaign. i worked for republicans and democrats in various administrations, so i am not a political person. but it seems to me that
follow that up. the israeli government, the prime minister, at least, has challenged the united states to define a red line or else is would be able to act on its own without clearing anything with the united states. this sounds to me like an ultimatum. is that what it was? was a governnt of israel giving us an ultimatum? was that wise? >> look, israel was in my portfolio. i have traveled there 13 times. i have had hundreds of meetings with israeli officials. we are in lock step with them on how far iran is toward getting a nuclear weapon capability. we are in step with them on the objective of preventing iran from getting a nuclear weapon. they do not have the same military capability of the united states has. they do not believe they can wait as long as we can. we need to work together to align our clocks. president netanyahu is expressing concerns. the president shares those concerns. it is a huge threat to israel and the interest of the united states. this president has made clear that all options will be considered to address that. the current israeli government would like the u.s

. there is no training being offered to militia groups. one reason may be because governments cannot do that. but they have to go through the army, which has their own agenda and their own reasons for not reaching out to d.c. youth -- to these youth. i have no ready answer as to how to get around that but it is a problem. it is not simply there is a lot of help to the libyans. there is an amazing amount of initiative. again, i have to say it is mostly tripoli and been gauzy -- benghazi but i'm talking about people training themselves. they observe the elections in egypt. working with the germans and various other areas to develop this awareness of what is going on. again, though, that this not hitting the militias who are largely unemployed young people who need something to do with their lives. they need a certain amount of training. the south has been neglected in that. part of it is a security thing. is it -- it is in a state of frozen conflict. i do not think any ngo would have the security to sustain a presence there. it is a state of frozen conflict. >> this what you're talking about w

of millions of dollars, set up better health care networks for the poor. i believe if the federal government would have a lot granted the state of new mexico 43% less money, and done away with all the strings and the mandate, i could've effectively oversee the delivery of health care to the fore. i think you apply that same template to medicare, health care for those over 65, get the federal government out of the health-care business completely , give it up to the states, in this case, block grants that balance revenues and expenditures, and that is how we ever get out of this. giving it up to the states, 50 laboratories of innovation and best practices, that is exactly what we will have. we will have some fabulous success and some horrible failure. failure of lincoln avoided, success will be emulated. that is how we will find our way out of this. host: gary johnson is with us from new mexico. he will be with us for about 40 more minutes. we will put the phone numbers on the bottom of the screen as we take a look at the libertarian nominee and his race overall. there is a recent gallup poll
